How to choose between offline and online freelancing?
- Your skillset
- Your aspiration of a workplace or environment
- Feasibility of working in that environment
Can you think of a few other service providers like this who have to work online because they are bound by the limitations of their skillset? Do write to me in your comments.
Suppose you are an expert of Microsoft Excel and you work as a freelance consultant or analyst and help the local firms with their finances. You work offline and visit the clients’ offices to build and deliver your work. All of a sudden, if you need to help someone sitting in a distant country with a quick problem in one of his Excel Workbooks, can you work offline? NO! You probably cannot physically go to that person’s place and help him solve the minute problem that he has. It has to be done Online!
What are you going to do? Offline or Online Freelancing?
